PEDROSA, Raquel Lima  and  TEIXEIRA, Leônia Cavalcante. The oral disorders biomedical perspective and its ramifications in psychological services. Psicol. USP [online]. 2015, vol.26, n.2, pp.221-230. ISSN 0103-6564.

This article aims to analyze the ramifications of the biomedical perspective in psychological services on an interdisciplinary service of nutritious disorders. The methodology consists of a documental research of medical registers of patients attended on the program who were diagnosed with nutritious disorder and that were being attended on the period between August 2012 and January 2013. The clinical categories privileged on this analysis were transference, symptoms and diagnosis. There was a total of 17 medical registers, all of female gender, aging between 14 and 61 years. Besides the prevalence of the biomedical discourse on the sessions report we identified subjective questions present on the patients discourse, but they were not extensively elaborated, such as familiar relationships, orality questions, puberty and femininity. From the psychoanalytical theory of Freud and Lacan, we discuss the mentioned questions, pointing out the importance to the comprehension and following of patients with nutritious disorders.

Keywords : biomedicine; psychoanalysis; interdisciplinary clinic; nutritious disorder.
